The New York Journal of Commerce, an untra-con-servative
publication, gives warning to congress and to
the radical protectionists who want to inject the tariff
question into politics once more, that it is no time to re
sume tinkering with schedules. It says editerially:
"The tnrriff question cannot suceesifullv he reopened and redisposed of to
day. There is as yet no certainty regarding the level to be assumed by n i
(iouai outlay for defense, and hence n i certainty as to the revenue require
ments. This matter may be temporarily disposed of during the current win
ter, hut n much lunger lime will be required iu the working out of n consist
ent policy of defense. Neither is it possible to readjust protective duties nt
tnis time. The highest protection ever enacted would -probably have in
creased the p.ist year's revenues little, if lit all. and could not, alone, hava
yielded to domestic in lustry, the monopoly accorded to it by circumstances,
l-'ree trade would have had is littlo result either iu stimulating imports or
modifying domestic prices. The premature adoption of n tariff policy or the
determination to adopt n certain kind ol' duties nt the close of the present
war would today be nothing short id' alisurd.
This is view taken by businessmen and is the sensible
way to look at it. The tariff question ought to be rele
gated to the rear for all time as a political question, any
way; as General Hancock was once ridiculed for saying, it
is a local question more than anything else. In other words
eveiy section of the country wants protection on the
things that it specializes in, products and manufactures,
and free trade in the things other sections produce and
make. That causes the trouble when congress comes to
making up the schedules, and as a rule most tariff laws
are a result of a long session of placating and compromis
ing, in the effort to satisfy the conflicting demands of
different sections and interests..
The present tariff law has proven that high tariff does
not make high prices for many of the products affected,
as may be noted in the case of wool and sugar. Neither
does it mean high wages for workingmen, since the form
er highly protected industries, steel and iron and woolen
goods, are under the present reduced tariff rates paying
the highest wages in the history of the country.
What this nation needs today is a sensible view upon
the part of statesmen, a view taken from the standpoint
of American citizenship of the patriotic kind, rather than
a view from the standpoint of partisans and privilege
THE TELEPHONE GIRL
It is the uniformity, the entire lack of exception to
the rule, which makes the story of the telephone girl in
times of stress so noteworthy.
With a long record of heroism back of her there is
nothing surprising in the story that came from Belgium
at the beginning of the war of the telephone girl at
Dahlen, or the one told of the Russian girl at Novorassysk.
The Belgian girl observed the battle going on around
her, undisturbed by the danger she was in, telephoned
the officers of the forts that they were not properly plac
ing their shells. Guided by her instructions over the
telephone, they found the right range, and "regulated
their fire effectively." She continued to direct the
Belgian fire until a German shell destroyed the office she
was in and killed her.
The Russian girl stayed at her post when everybody
pise had fled and did her work with shelU falling around
her. The decoration "for valor under fire" was never
more worthily granted to any soldier.
The telephone girl at Dahlen and the one at Novor
assyk keep up the traditions established at many a fire
and flood. a
How shall we account for this record without excep
tion ? Let us not try to account for it, but simply take off
our hats to her.
Mr. Ford has been disillusioned, says the St. Louis
Globe Democrat. Although he did not come in touch with
any of the nations at war, he got near enough to learn
that the people themselves are responsible for the fight
ing. If he had gone a little closer he would have found
that they are fighting because they believe it is right to
fight; he would have found that, without a single racial
exception, they are in general in full accord with the pur
pose of their respective governments, and are sacrificing

their lives in the conviction that their immolation is neces
sary to their country's preservation. Whatever may have
been the original causes of the war, however mistaken or
pernicious the influences behind it, he could have found
no support for the American notion that is was due to
the desire of certain individuals to find a market for guns.
Evidently he did not find support for it, even at the edge
of the Continent, and now that he has returned with a
new and a wiser view, he may learn the truth that even
in the United States it is the people themselves who are
back of the demand for preparedness, and, if necessary,
for the maintenance of their honor and their rights, for
Ex-President Taft declares that a "real" Republican
must be the standard bearer for the Republican party in
1916. While we do not profess to know much about G. O.
P. politics, we are inclined to think that this remark is in

The English seem to have retired from the Dardan

horde of ill-humored Turks in the neighborhood might
have had something to do with it.
Germany is soon to float another war loan, this one
for $2,500,000,000. Her chemists must have learned how
to make synthetic money as well as synthetic food, says
the New York Evening Sun.
According to the Federal v Trade Commission over
100,000 corporations in this country have no income what
ever. These are probably the good corporations that we
sometimes hear about.

and blown his kale for foaming ale, and
found the whole thing phony. He's worn
old rags while placing jags his saturated
hide in, for lads who booze can't have good
shoes and clothes they take a pride in. He
had a place, but in disgrace, was fired by
his employer; for boys who drink the old

looped the loops with noisy troops of youths
who raise the dickens; he's bumped the
bumps, and, in the dumps, repentance
throbs and quickens. Swear off, young man, while yet
you can, and leave the booze behind you; the suds you
buy, the rot-and-rye, will poison you and blind you. Swear
off, tired heart, the water cart is waiting at the portal, to
bear you far from gilded bar, to where men sing and
chortle. To Hydrantgrad it goes, my lad; climb on, ere
it's a goner! There you'll win back the things you lack,
your self respect, your honor.

Fire of an unknown origin stnrter In
the 8. (). Rue barn in Kvatu Vnllev
Monday morning about eight o'clock
nnd soon destroyed the building. The
family did not arise nt their usual hour
that, morning, due to sickness among
tho children. Mr. Rue being the first
one up, happened to look toward the
burn and was aninr.cd to see a small
flame shoot upward from the lost. H
ran to tit barn at the miiii time call
ing to the family, and was successful
in getting the stock out. One of the
boys reached the loft with ft pail of
water and nearly smothered the fire,
but whllo he was after more water
the flames gained such headway that
the barn could not be ssved.
The neighbors were prompt hi going
to Mr, Rue's aid, otherwise the sur
rounding buildings would surely have
burned. The ginnnry and machine

the burning barn, wero saved.

(A thrilling realistic novel of high
life. Published by the Wadsworth

believing that no author should write
nt mat'ers wherein he la not fully In

believer in the literary value of "local
olor", spent two days In New York
City last winter. He visited the pur
lieus of wealth, and even looked In
the windows of some of the houses
in Fifth Avenue. The results of this
indefatigable research he has embod
ied In this novel, which, while posses

Dehlnd Society's Curtain."
It was evening. The beautiful par
lor in the palatial residence of the
Kversleys was brilliantly illuminated
with three large lamps. Before the
flickering firelight of the grate sat
Seraphita Eversley, Reginald Evers
ley's lawful wedded wife. Her white
hands were folded Idly In her lap. She
was the child of luxury and those ex
quisite white hands had never been
condemned to the drudgery of hard
work. She kept two hired girls, so
that she did not even have to make
the beds or sweep off the front stoop.
A ring was suddenly heard at the
front door bell. A moment later the
hired girl appeared at the door and
said: "It's him, Miss' Eversley."
"Tell him to walk right In," com
manded the lady, Imperiously.
A moment later a man entered the
room with the grace and figure of an

milling sweetly at him, but trembling
r little, though she did not know why.
"Don't care If I do," he replied, air
ily; and, laying his hat and coat on
the piano, he drew a chair to her sldo
in front of the fire and lighted a tra
gi ant Havana cigar.
"Where's Reginald?" he asked,
icrowling fiercely Into the flames.
"Oh! He's at the club, as usual,"
vhe replied, wearily. "He seeins to do
nothing else in the evening except go
lo that dreadful club and play cards
ind dominos for money, and drink
nhiskey nnd beer. It's horrible shs

ed gracefully, speaking the French
with an almost perfect accent.
"How lovely you speak French!"
she observed, toying with the charms
on his watch chain. "You speak al
most like a French person."
"Yes," he replied; "people often tell
me so. It may be because the room

Louis Quince's furniture."
Tlrere was a long silence, while ho
